Renewable Energy Generation and Net Metering
SB 1024 Renewable Energy Generation and HB 741 Net Metering would undermine our right to net metering and have a devastating impact on our economy at a time when we can least afford it. Currently, the Sunshine state produces the 3rd most electricity from solar panels in the country, and the rooftop solar industry supports nearly 40,500 jobs.
Solar net metering is important because it allows solar customers to receive full, fair retail credit from their utility for the excess energy they produce and share with neighbors. People and businesses across the state rely on net metering so they can take control of their own energy. Net metering gives us the ability to choose how we power our lives.
Now more than ever, Florida’s leaders need to hear our voices so they know that strong solar policy matters to you, your family, and your community.

BOTTOM LINE: Don’t let a monopoly utility kill rooftop solar. Contact your legislators today. Return to the website each week, and your message will be distributed to committee members currently considering the bills.
